  1. Thank you, My wife still wants to work and her parents winter in Sun City. I'll check it out though!
  2. It will be the Phoenix valley area. Depending on what we find.
  3. My family has visited our in laws in AZ the last few years. We love it down here. Any advice about moving to az? What about bringing in an out of state vehicle? I will have a 13 year old son and a 19 year old daughter with me. I am 100% P&T. Thank you
  4. Having worked for an environmental company, I know that when they say it is cleaned up it usually is just to more acceptable levels or it is just cleaned up at the wells that they are testing and when they are testing. I was there in the mid 90s and wonder if it was really cleaned up......
  5. I have had four primary care docs in the last 10 years. Only one would write letters and he no longer works for the VA. The VA ended up finding a reason for firing him. He was my first doc, since then no one else wants to write a letter in fear of getting fired!!!
  6. I am having an issue finding a doc to write and IMO about my spine. What I am trying to get is a letter from a doc saying that my headaches and neck (cervical spine) are connected to my back issues. In my opinion it is pretty common sense, but the VA has some pretty off thinking. My primary care provider won't write one. My Chiro will, but I was told that a chiropractor is not held to a very high regard. Thanks
  7. I completely understand and can relate a little. I hurt my back in 1996 at the age of 22. The military told me that there was nothing wrong with my back. Fast forward a year and I am service connected for my back, but at 0%. I am happy, but know I am more disabled than that. So I appeal, when it is denied I drop it. About 5 years later I reapply for an upgrade and have to appeal it to get upgrade to 20%. I just a few days ago got up to 40% and I had to appeal that one too. If need someone to talk to or whatever shoot me a message. I'll try to help out as much as I can.
  8. I got the statement of the case yesterday. They awarded it based on the date of the C&P. I am hoping that it is an easy fix. I am not holding my breath, but I am still hoping.
  9. I don't know why this surprised me, but when the retro hit the bank it was less than half of what it was supposed to be. Called my VSO and they said my effective date is almost 2 years after I filed. So it looks like I am back in the appeal line to get my effective date fixed. I was so pissed that I mailed them a copy of the form that shows the date it was submitted and even called my Senator. Why does the VA have to continue to mess with everyone?
  10. 40% Back (Lumbar muscle spasms) Many herniated discs 30% Chronic Pain Syndrome 10% Chronic Prostates 10% Right Knee PFS 10% Left Knee PFS 10% Sciatica 10% Neuropathy
  11. No I had 3 C&Ps and all of them showed the range of motion in the 40% range. I just kept appealing until they finally went WTH? Wish I could find someone for a IMO up where I am at.
  12. Still working full time....Wish I could because work is getting tougher and tougher.....
